Abstract

The thermal conductivity dataset is from the Geothermal Energy Project's thermal conductivity database. It contains thermal conductivity value for rocks sampled from minerals and stratigraphic wells across Australia. Currenlty there are 405 measurements from 45 drill holes in the database. Access to these drill holes and samples has been provided by mining and exploration companies and state surveys. Samples have been measured for thermal conductivity by either Geoscience Australia or by Hot Dry Rocks Pty Ltd (HDR) using the divided bar apparatus.
